A Stormy Start, But Plenty To Look Forward To In 2014


A Stormy Start, But Plenty To Look Forward To In 2014

It’s been a bumpy start to the new year to say the least. The first week of January has seen storm after storm, with dire consequences for many in the hospitality industry. From battered sea fronts to flooded riversides, businesses across the country have been deluged, and not in a good way. The Fat Fowl and Bathampton Mill near Bath were just two businesses close to HospitalityGEM HQ that suffered a disastrous Christmas and New Year period . The worst of the weather is now behind us (for the time being), and the industry can look forward to a what will hopefully be a prosperous year. With the economy on the mend, big events like the 2014 World Cup and Commonwealth Games on the horizon, and the everlasting hope that we will see another decent summer in the UK, there are plenty of reasons for the hospitality industry to be optimistic. Here’s our quick guide to events to plan for in 2014: January 25 th January - Burns Night 31 st January - Chinese New Year February 1st February - 6 Nations 7 th February - Winter Olympics 14 th February - Valentine’s Day March 1 st March - St David’s Day 30 th Marc h - Mother’s Day 17 th March - St Patrick’s Day April 20 th April - Easter Sunday 23 rd April - St George’s Day May 5 th May - Bank Holiday 26 th May - Bank Holiday June 12th June - FIFA World Cup 15 th June - Father’s Day 23 rd June - Wimbledon July 23rd July - Commonwealth Games August 25 th August - Bank Holiday October 31 st October - Hallowe’en November 5 th November - Guy Fawkes Night 30 th November - St Andrew’s Day December 25 th December - Christmas Day 31 st December - New Year’s Eve
